Day 136 Rainbow Falls

Yeah, I know. No picture today. Still, this is a nice one of Rainbow falls that I took about 6 years ago when I was still using a point and shoot. It goes to show you that the scenery, not the equipment, makes the photo.

Another one I took on Sunday. This is (obviously) facing towards the Western end of Big Bear lake. This one came right out of the camera like this (with a bit of cropping to eliminate a smudge on the lens filter).

Day 133 Rescue Dog

We went into the Village on Saturday Night to have a look around and window shop. There were many really cool dogs walking about and hanging around. This one here was easily the most interesting. He is a Search and Rescue dog and his handler said the dog wore these yellow goggles to protect his retinas. When dogs are out in the snow on sunny days, they can burn their retinas in a few years and go blind. He said he trained this dog to wear the goggles while he was a pup and now the dog is accustomed to them.
